Not sure how many people are having this same problem, but if your browser is only intermittently connecting to sites, and getting a DNS error at other times, it may be because you're using Google's DNS server, which is experiencing problems at the moment.

It took me a while to pin down the problem, but finally switching to OpenDNS solved it immediately.

Your link does not seem to be Open DNS. Here is the website I know:

Here is the Correct Website

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

Anyway, what's up with the DNS? I don't know what that means

Thanks

DNS means Domain Name System.

It converts domain names to IP adresses among other things.

It gets you onto and around the internet. Wiki

OpenDNS is an alternative to your ISP's DNS.

It works quite well. I have used it since ATS went down. OpenDNS Wiki

It's correct; just a subnet on the same domain.

Thank you, things seem to be alright now, so I guess I won't switch.

Twice when I opened ATS, my anti-virus software blocked a virus attack.
Did this happen to anyone else?
